I have an announcement to make. A very awesome one.
My book has a title.
The title is Perilous. What do you think? Does it make you want to go out and buy it? At least catch your interest?
Of course, it's not set in stone. It could still change. That's how these things are, you know.
So you may have guessed already, but I heard back from my editor! She approved the title. She also gave me many many things to work on, which really ignites my excitement and gets me ready to write. I'll quit working on my sequel now (though I did make my goal today, in case you're wondering) and get back to work on this one.
It's funny how you miss things. No matter how many times I revised (and had others revise), there are still little things I do that nobody else noticed. My ticks. Kristine pointed out that I overused the contract ('d). I laughed out loud--really--when I started searching for this contraction. It's everywhere!!! Not only that, but I went to close down my sequel, and noticed it all over that book, too!
She also pointed out an abundance of 'gonna' in dialogue. She said it's fine if one character speaks with quirky grammar often, but not all of them. I never would've noticed!
I haven't even taken a look at the rest of the comments. First the easy stuff. Then the big stuff! I'll keep you updated.
